“Warm service in the cold winter”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2012

After a visit in August, 2011, decided to return for short stay. Heather at front desk even called and made reservations to a local restaurant for dinner, since we knew we'd be arriving when most places to eat were getting ready to close. Bill's was charming and food very very good. See review of Bill's under restaurants. Back to Hampton-quality, cleanliness, friendliness know no seaon here. Beds soft and white and cozy. Everything in room functional and good quality. View-well, since I did request one, we did get one. A treat to wake up to view of the waterway and seabirds being whipped around by cold winds. Don't miss the NASA visitor center when you leave the island. Only cautionary note-off season-many of local tourist dependent businesses appear to be closed. Call ahead. Back to Hampton again-we were told twice that the pool was closed for painting (walls, I assume)-but we didn't see that as a problem with lovely snow flurries outside!

Room Tip: Just ask. Also remember to ask about discounts, we used our AAA. Very good off season rate for 2 q...

Arriving at this hotel just before sunset was perfect as we arrived just in time for a beautiful sunset from our balcony which faced the waterway separating the island from the mainland. The young lady at the front desk was friendly and obviously made it her goal to help guests enjoy their stay. Her tips about some nice nearby Christmas lights were spot on as were her pointers about island sightseeing and dining. Our oversized guest room had two queen beds plus a sleeper sofa which gave plenty of room to relax. The indoor pool and hot tub area were perfectly clean and well maintained and the breakfast area was inviting and offered a nice breakfast. The hotel is located on the water and there even is a boat dock for those arriving by boat and there are benches for enjoying the waterfront though it was a bit chilly for that during our stay. The entire hotel staff was super pleasant and we were impressed by the hard working maintenance man who always seemed busy tidying up the hotel and the grounds. Chincoteague is a super relaxing place and adjacent Assateague Island is an amazing wildlife refuge where Chincoteague ponies roam freely and vistors will see ducks, various species of birds and other wildlife. The wildlife refuge also sports attractive beaches on the Atlantic side of the island. Without a doubt this was the best Hampton Inn we have ever patronized.

Room Tip: The back side of the hotel features rooms overlooking the water.

We have stayed here before and enjoyed it. It overlooks the marsh and bridge to Chincoteague Island. It stays booked year round since it is located near the NASA Wallops facility and several related corporations, so make reservations! There is no 'off season'. A marsh front room is best. One side of the hotel overlooks a commercial fishing/oystering operation and the other side overlooks the Comfort Inn and Suites. (We have also stayed there, and it is nice too.) Every room should have some kind of water view, though. One nice thing--you can open a window! The breakfast area overlooks the marsh, and in warm weather you can eat outside.
The AC unit in the room was quiet.
The hotel is well maintained and nicely landscaped, with a friendly staff.

Room Tip: Ask for a room directly facing the marsh, on the second floor or above. (First floor, your balcony m...

The Hampton Inn is a nice, modern, new hotel on the island. It is not ocean front but then no hotels on the island are. Rather it is overlooking the inlet. We enjoyed watching the towns ducks each morning and evening following local fishing boats. The staff was very friendly and the hotel is nice and clean. Typical but delicious free breakfast fare. I just wish they had put a few extra dollars into better mattresses.

The Hampton Inn at Chincoteague is a relatively new hotel in a lovely setting. Rooms are spacious and very clean. The desk clerks are friendly and helpful. Coffee and tea are available throughout the day and the complimentary breakfast is tasty and adequate.
Unfortunately the walls are a bit thin and guests can hear the sounds of showers running in adjacent rooms. In addition I was able to hear clearly the sounds of footsteps in the room above me.

Room Tip: If a waterfront view is desired select a room on the upper floors. The first floor view is crowded...

We'd never been to Chincoteague before and didn't know what to expect. We DID know that we wanted a room overlooking the water. Now, if you are expecting to be lulled to sleep by the ocean's waves, forget it. This hotel IS on the water and the room we had was VERY nice, but it overlooks more still, marsh-type water. It is still beautiful - just not your typical "beach stay". The staff was great. The room was spotless. The view was relaxing. You won't be disappointed. (We did have to board our 7-pound dog at a kennel in Princess Anne becasue they do not take pets.)
